The Danny Rose saga has been a key talking point at Tottenham Hotspur ever since his public outburst during the summer of 2017 in which he criticised the club for their perceived lack of ambition and refusal to change their wage structure, and a recent report from the Daily Mirror suggests that it could continue for the remainder of August.
Danny Rose has been a mainstay in Tottenham’s first-team for the majority of his senior career, but he struggled for opportunities last season due to injury problems and the impeccable form of Ben Davies. His failure to break back into the first-team after injury has prompted plenty of speculation linking him with a move away from the club, and the most recent European clubs to express an interest are Paris Saint-Germain and Schalke, according to the Daily Mirror.
The report claims that both PSG and Schalke are interested in signing Rose before the end of August and Tottenham are willing to sell despite the fact they will be unable to sign a replacement now that the English transfer window has shut.
The report is rather concerning for Tottenham fans considering they only have Ben Davies to chose from aside from the England international as there’s no doubt his presence will be needed as the season develops.
But Rose (valued at £27 million by Transfermarkt) could yet change attitudes within Tottenham’s hierarchy by committing his future to the club and vowing the fight for his place this season.
At this moment in time Rose will naturally be tempted by the prospect of moving to the French capital and embarking on a new challenge where he will have the opportunity to resurrect his career, so it would represent a huge statement of loyalty if he were to snub the advances of PSG and fight for his place at Spurs.
Rose has an uphill task ahead of him if he wishes to convince Mauricio Pochettino that he is committed to both him and the club, but if he decides to snub the advances of PSG there’s no doubt he will put himself in a fantastic position to make a full comeback and threaten Davies’ position as first choice left-back this season.
